I like this one. Am surprised there wasn't a thread for it before. Will look good next to L-Tower.

Watch out for Fanucci if you go backstage.

Looks like the building is being built right into the tracks...

As you pass on the GO it is very close to the tracks. I wouldn't want to be in one of the lower units.

I like the dark cladding, it's different. For sure.

This is a good looking one for sure so far. It seems to be keeping a low profile under the radar, but is actually one of the ones I'm most interested in seeing the final project once completed.

I thought the rendering looked to optimistic, but this is turning out to be a gem!

Same here. I'm very pleased with what I see thus far.

I was downtown the other day and got a good look at Backstage. I wasn't able to get any photos, but to the eye it's looking good. I do like the contrast of the dark glass against the much lighter blue in L-Tower.

I take back most of the praise I've issued for Backstage. From a far it's ok, but up close the cladding is a disaster. It looks painfully cheap, and the white flecks really do not work with the black panels. I had thought this tower being black would look great, but sadly in its current state it is quickly forgettable.

The black glass is a nice contrast to alot of buildings in it's vicinity, but I gotta agree those white specks look really redundant and just mess with the design.
